1Download and print the project template for help in assembling this project.
You will need the following quantities of beads for doing this project as shown:
Brown = 152
White = 104
Red = 102
Dark Green = 82
Black = 42
Kiwi Lime = 18
Orange = 1
2Slide template under the large Clear square pegboard. Place the beads as indicated on the template.
3Place your pegboard on a flat, heat-safe surface. Set a household iron to the medium setting. Place ironing paper over the pegboard. In a circular motion, begin to iron the project. When ironed properly, the beads will still have an open center. Let the design cool.
4Remove the paper and bead design from the pegboard. Flip the design over to expose the non-fused side. Repeat step 3. Let cool completely. Once the design is cool, peel off the ironing paper. Your pegboards and ironing paper are reusable. (Note: beads need heat for about 10-20 seconds per side to fuse evenly. Depending on the size of the project, additional heating time may be required. For the gingerbread man, bend him to a sitting position while the beads are still warm from fusing.
Tree: Trim the Green printed cardstock as needed to fit your printer. Print the to/from pattern on the White side of Green printed cardstock. Cut out the shape and adhere it to your tree with the Green print showing through the tree. Thread a length of Silver ribbon through the top Yellow bead to create a hanger.
Snowman: Trim the Snowcap cardstock as needed to fit your printer. Print the to/from pattern onto Snowcap cardstock. Fold along the dashed line so the to/from is on the inside. Punch the hole. Glue your snowman to the outside of the tag. Thread a length of Red ribbon through the hole and tie in a bow.
Gingerbread Man: Trim the Green printed cardstock as needed to fit your printer. Print the to/from pattern on the White side of Green printed cardstock. Fold on the dashed line with to/from on the inside. Punch the hole. Tie to the gingerbread mans arm with silver ribbon.
Candy Canes: Trim the Snowcap cardstock as needed to fit your printer. Print the to/from pattern onto Snowcap cardstock. Punch the hole. Glue the two candy canes in a heart shape on the pattern as shown in the picture. Thread a length of Red ribbon through the hole to create a hanger for an ornament or a tie for a gift tag.
